Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This follows on directly from The Sacred Bones which saw the ossuary containing the bones of Christ secretly taken to Rome for examination. Now we move onto the analysis and the American scientist, Charlotte Hennessey, injecting herself with the DNA! Wow. So not only are the bones sought by villainous parties but so too is she. This is terrific – fast paced – lots of action and some nice twists – one of the best in the area.

Comparison: Dan Brown, Raymond Khoury, James Rollins.

Synopsis

The Sacred Blood by Michael Byrnes

The dust has barely settled in the Holy Land after a terrible raid on Temple Mount when a group of archaeologists in the Judean desert stumble upon a secret room inside a cave. Its walls are covered in Egyptian hieroglyphs and other symbols, including the curious image of a dolphin wrapped around a trident. There they discover an old clay jar, also bearing this unusual symbol, and containing an ancient scroll...Meanwhile, a covert and ruthless sect called The Sons of Light are planning to turn the world upside down. Their ancient secret safe beneath Egyptian sands, they still need a very specific strain of DNA - the DNA from a human skeleton, 2,000 years old, stolen from beneath Temple Mount. When they discover that American scientist Charlotte Hennesey actually shares this DNA, the race begins to kidnap the girl and prepare for the final battle.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
